Folger Shakespeare Library Fellowships, 2016-2017

Deadline: 1 November 2015

The Folger’s extraordinary collections are essential to understanding the early modern period and its continued resonance in our world. The fellowships program brings the collections immediately to life, by putting scholars and practitioners with compelling research questions into direct and sustained engagement with the books, manuscripts, art—and each other. Folger fellows create a high-powered community of early modernists unavailable in most university departments, enriching the exchange of views among scholars from different fields but with cognate interests.

Through Folger’s Works-in-Progress lunch-time presentation series, interaction with scholarly programs, consultation on exhibitions and public performances, and many social gatherings, fellows have multiple opportunities to test ideas, weigh arguments, and stimulate fresh approaches to early modern humanities.
